Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-04-28

Many organizations are obligated by legal, regulatory, or business process requirements to process, filter, modify, and store e-mail messages transferred to and from the organization and the Internet, in addition to internal communications between individuals in the organization. The transport policy and compliance infrastructure of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 provides a set of rules that govern how e-mail messages are stored and processed based on a set of requirements. The following important features help you comply with these legal, regulatory, and business process requirements more easily:

Policy and compliance features are enhanced by or are also available as services from Microsoft Exchange Hosted Services.

Exchange Hosted Services is a set of four distinct hosted services:

  • Hosted Filtering, which helps organizations protect themselves from e-mail-borne malware
  • Hosted Archive, which helps them satisfy retention requirements for compliance
  • Hosted Encryption, which helps them encrypt data to preserve confidentiality
  • Hosted Continuity, which helps them preserve access to e-mail during and after emergency situations

These services integrate with any on-premises Exchange servers that are managed in-house or Hosted Exchange e-mail services that are offered through service providers. For more information about Exchange Hosted Services, see Microsoft Exchange Hosted Services.
